SEIFEM 2010 study is a prospective, multicenter registry designed to identify and analyze risk factors for developing an invasive fungal infection in patients with newly diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia, with particular interest on pre-hospital risk factors (i.e. those related to normal activities of daily life, such as occupation, location and type of residence, consume of tobacco, alcohol and others).

Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective

Further study details as provided by Catholic University of the Sacred Heart:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of Invasive fungal infections [ Time Frame: 30th day after the end of first line chemotherapy ]
    To identify possible fungal infections sources for the period preceding the diagnosis of leukemia, in particular those related to normal activities of daily life (e.g. occupation, location and type of residence, consume of tobacco, alcohol or illicit drugs and others).

Estimated Enrollment: 1000
Study Start Date: January 2010
Newly disgnosed AML
Adult and pediatric patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia, both eligible and not eligible for intensive chemotherapy. Since this is a non-interventional study, therapeutic strategies remains related to local guidelines. Will be treated as cases all patients with acute leukemia in first induction developing an Invasive Fungal Infection according to international EORTC criteria for possible/probable/proven infections. Patients who do not develop the infection will be used as a control group.
